Experienced Podiatrists

Podiatrists are medically trained professionals who possess the expertise to diagnose and treat a wide range of skin and nail conditions. Unlike pedicurists, podiatrists can identify and address underlying issues such as fungal infections, ingrown toenails, and other foot-related ailments that may require medical intervention. With their extensive knowledge and access to advanced treatments, podiatrists provide comprehensive care that goes beyond cosmetic enhancements, ensuring the health and wellbeing of your feet and nails. Therefore, seeking the expertise of a podiatrist for your skin and nail care needs ensures you receive accurate diagnosis, effective treatment, and ongoing support for optimal foot health.

Frequently Asked Questions

Results vary depending on the severity of the infection and the chosen treatment method. Typically, improvement is seen within a few months, with complete resolution taking several months to a year.
Our podiatrists use local anaesthesia to ensure that patients remain comfortable during ingrown toenail surgery. Discomfort during the procedure is minimal, and post-operative pain can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.
While over-the-counter treatments for corns and calluses are available, it’s important to use them with caution. Improper removal techniques can lead to skin damage and infections. It’s best to seek professional care from a podiatrist for safe and effective corn and callus removal.
As part of your initial assessment, our podiatrists provide advice on proper footwear, foot care techniques, and cushioning products to help prevent friction and pressure on vulnerable areas of the feet, reducing the risk of corns and calluses.
It’s generally recommended to avoid wearing nail polish during fungal nail treatment to allow better penetration of antifungal medications and to monitor the progress of the infection. Your podiatrist will provide specific recommendations based on your individual situation.
